I Have Realised In The Last Five Years That I Am Older: Geoffrey Rush
It goes without saying that Australian actor and film producer Geoffrey Rush is one of the most distinguished actors of Hollywood. The Genius actor is the youngest amongst the few people who have won the Triple Crown of Acting - the Academy Award, the Primetime Emmy Award and the Tony Award. The renowned actor says that he has started looking for roles that are closer to his age.
Gush has a career spanning over four decades in films and theatre. “I have realised in the last five years that I am older. So, I look at the roles like that. I never thought about the age of the characters before”, the Final Portrait actor was quoted as saying.
“In the last five years, I have played Lady Bracknell in 'The Importance of Being Earnest', King Lear in theatre, Ra in 'Gods of Egypt' and now Albert Einstein. These are the roles that I think I am in the right age group to do. I look at their landscape and what I can bring to them”, Gush added.
Gush is best known for his award-winning performance in the 1996 film ‘Shine’. He will next be seen in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’, which also stars Johnny Depp and Kevin McNally. The fifth instalment in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series is directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, penned by Jeff Nathanson and bankrolled by Jerry Bruckheimer. The fantasy swashbuckler film will release on May 26.
